 Eine Pflegefachfrau sitzt in einem Behandlungszimmer.

01.12.2017 - 30.11.2022

In Bosnien und Herzegowina bilden die Pflegefachpersonen die grösste Berufsgruppe des Gesundheitswesens. Trotz ihrer Nähe zur lokalen Bevölkerung wird ihr Potenzial noch nicht ausgeschöpft. Sie erfüllen häufig administrative statt pflegerische Aufgaben und haben kaum Aufstiegsmöglichkeiten. Deshalb zieht es sie häufig nach Westeuropa, wo die Arbeitsbedingungen besser sind. Gerade mit der Förderung der Pflege könnte der Zugang von Menschen in ländlichen Gebieten und von benachteiligten Bevölkerungsgruppen zur Gesundheitsversorgung verbessert werden.
